I'll free up a primary spot and drop to reserve status. I likely won't have a Monday evening free until the 7/19 date. 6/7 would be a big maybe, but it's likely I would miss at least the first half of the season. The 7/5 date I'll be at the track, and if the past three years are any indicator I'll be putting a motor in a 914 at 2AM on 8/30. :lol:

Between real race season, growing season, and motorcycle season this time of year gets tough anyway, but I'll try and make it when I can. As always, the offer to help anyone stands. Even with limited seat time, or even if you feel you've plateaued, there is time to be found. Just ask superstreet. :lol:

Schedule looks very doable, only race that'll be questionable is the final since that's when classes start back up but mostly things look good. Should be good for Monday.

Also, sorry for not being able to do the last race of season 1. Had abit of a health scare (Which has thankfully turned out not to be life threatening).

Tentative for me put me as a reserve. Gonna try and get ACC going on Mondays.
Are you shooting for biweekly? If not, are there no ABS participants besides yourself that could go to your Monday ACC?

With your history in these Nova series, sign-up granted at ballast +5.
OK, but I am the slowest guy in D1. Do a little research before you give me to much credit. Anyway, I still like the car. I have a friend that built one. I hope I can stop it before plowing into anything. ;) :cheers:
